VS 2003 to VS 2005 Migration Issues

P: n/a
We have a fairly big size ASP.NET web application that was written VB.NET.
We are in the process converting the web project.

We used the migration wizard included in VS 2005. I followed step by step
guide outlined in here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/asp.net/re...ojectsvs05.asp.

I was able to convert the project without any problem.

Compiling and building them is another problem. There were 204 errors
(VS2005 stopped compilation when it this number) and 11 Warnings. Most of
the errors came from some temporary files which seems to be created during
the migration process.

Here are just the sample of them:

Error 2 Attribute 'GeneratedCodeAttribute' cannot be applied multiple times.
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temp orary ASP.NET
Files\2\a52902f6\c1095f62\App_Code.ckwbouy-.36.vb 19
Error 8 Attribute 'HelpKeywordAttribute' cannot be applied multiple times.
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temp orary ASP.NET
Files\2\a52902f6\c1095f62\App_Code.ckwbouy-.36.vb 25
Error 13 'Public ReadOnly Property _Table() As _TableDataTable' has
multiple definitions with identical signatures.
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temp orary ASP.NET
Files\2\a52902f6\c1095f62\App_Code.ckwbouy-.36.vb 81
Error 176 'Public Sub SetFrom_DateNull()' has multiple definitions with
identical signatures.
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Temp orary ASP.NET
Files\2\a52902f6\c1095f62\Sources_App_Code\_2.unde rwriterfundeddeals.xsd.d9adfd4c.vb
669 24 http://localhost/2/

I tried MSDN's online concierge and the person I chatted with have no clue.

I would really appreciate any help you can send my way.

Thanks

Hi,

1) Did you upgrade the migration wizard with update released in December,
before trying the conversion?
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

That fixes a big bunch of problems

2) Consider easing the migration by taking use of Web Application project
add-on with VS2005. it is designed to ease the migration from VS2003 model
8since VS2005's default web site model is very different from VS2003's
model). Web Application provides similar model to VS2005 as the model is in
VS2003 today.
